Police arrest man masquerading as Safaricom engineer

On Sunday, police arrested a man who vandalized Safaricom Telecommunication equipment In Murang’a, central Kenya.

After convincing the guard to let him in, Leny Ng’ang’a, masquerading as a Safaricom engineer on a maintenance mission, had gained access to a transmitter station.

After a while, the guard became suspicious of the man's activities and alerted police officers, who immediately rushed to the scene.

However, the suspect managed to escape by jumping into his vehicle and speeding off, prompting a chase not witnessed by Murang’a residents in recent times. The suspect's getaway, which means a new Suzuki alto KDB 522P, sped towards Saba Saba as the police land cruiser roared closely behind.

“After a few kilometres past Saba Saba, the resilient all-terrain police machine caught up with the suspect, forcing him to pull over in surrender," said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

Further search in the suspect's car led to discovering the telecommunication equipment suspected to have been vandalized elsewhere.

The suspect's motor vehicle was impounded, and he shall be arraigned in court today to answer to his crimes
